It is my experience that parents of children with diabetes are rocks; pillars of strength in their families. This is not by choice, but through necessity.
Laura is one of the strongest. She’s a single mom of three young, beautiful children, two of which live with challenging autoimmune diseases. Laura spoke with us this past Monday and shared what life is like parenting a child with type 1 diabetes, a child with Crohn’s disease and a child who loves and worries for her two younger siblings.
Please listen in to hear Laura tell us about the challenges she’s been through and continues to face, how she copes, where she gets support and more.
I was particularly moved by her comparison of parenting a child with diabetes to a child with Crohn’s. You may be surprised by what she had to say. I’m glad to have had the opportunity to understand more about what Crohn’s disease is and what it is like living with it.
